Intel debuts new products – not many told

Win98SE problems to blame?

Chipzilla has sneaked out a bunch of new products, but apparently forgot to tell its spin paramedics. The Cayman 810 Celeron mobo now has a presence on the Intel support web site at http://support.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/ca810/ where users will no doubt be thrilled to discover yet more incompatibilities with the all-singing, all-dancing Win98SE. Also shuffling quietly onto the stage are two new USB video gizmos featuring the ability to capture video and TV feeds for editing on a PC. The PC Camera Pack and the PC Camera Pack Pro are revealed on Intel's developer web site, but not at Chipzilla Central. Priced at around $130, they come with software optimised for Pentium III which means smaller file sizes, apparently. And launching to the blare of, well, nothing at all, is the new InBusiness Internet Station. The original Internet router in the InBusiness (aka Dayna) range was obsoleted by Win98SE and Win2000 which offer Internet modem sharing over a LAN as standard, so Intel needed a swift rethink. The result is the Internet Station 56K which combines the routing function of its predecessor along with a 56K modem and a four port 10Mb hub, all in one dinky box. Yours for $349. ®
